Drupal is one of the most powerful content management systems. It offers an intuitive interface that grants the user the power to do just about anything including e-commerce, forums, blogs, membership sites, and about anything else you can think of. However with all this ingenuity in one fully packed content management system it can be overwhelming for the new or intermediate web developer. Here we consider your options to effectively learn Drupal as fast and effectively as possible.
Picking a Drupal learning course is an important decision to make. You'll want to get the most value out of your course. An effective course will provide all you need to develop any sort of web pages you want in the Drupal environment. You can of course learn all of the stuff required to master Drupal via the internet. However this method of learning is not very cost effective if you value your time. This is because you will inevitably leave gaps of knowledge in your education which you will spend hours searching for on forums to fill. Learning Drupal from a book is not a very effective learning method either because it is extremely time consuming. Although I do recommend picking up a book as a reference guide for the future.
Probably the best method to learn Drupal is to have a one on one instructor to show you step by step the inner workings of Drupal. Of course this is also the most expensive method. Online video courses probably offer the best of both worlds. They offer a cheap package while giving the best user value with intuitive and easy to follow learning courses.
